Hey guys, it's Eric from JDML again.... sorry I've been M.I.A. on this thread for a while, things have been crazy nuts at the shop lately and it doesn't leave much time for forum cruising. I'll pick up 4 Pizzas from Little Ceasar's on the way down and toss them in the back of the Celica....... and as long as I don't get hassled by the man for expired dealer plates on the way from NSL I'll be there :nervous face:

Since we are doing pizza, and probably no need for utensils, I will bring some soda. I do pepsi products, so if people want coke, bring it yourself lol.

Got a PM from Foxau2.. I wish I could be there, but my Celica is down. It's had an overheating issue from the day I got it shipped from the mechanics in FL (I lived in FL for 5 years and it was still with them when I moved to UT). Not only that, but it was running at the end of winter and now will not even start.

Anyone know of a good shop in the area that can work on a car like mine?

'77 Celica
3sgte with lots of mods
SDS engine management
supra rear w/upgraded brakes
wilwood big brake kit up front
power R&P steering
modern A/C
Other little bits and pieces....

As it sits now after the camber adjustment plates lowere it a bit:

engine shot:

Fog lights in the grill have been removed:

Just for fun, this is what it looked like when I bought it:

Help me out guys, where can I find someone to get this on the road!?!?!?

Thats going to be a tough call. Wish I knew more of the shops around her. I would just start calling any tuner shop in the area and go from there.

And you should still come to the meet, JTIN or not, just to meet fellow minds and maybe find people who know of some good shops.

Dang that's too bad! I was hoping to disgrace your car by parking mine next to it and taking a picture. :) You should still come anyway! :tu:

PS, have you tried running it without the thermostat all together? I was having troubles with my 20r overheating due to air in the system (when I was using the incorrect radiator) and running without the tstat solved it. it never heated all the way up but that isn't really a problem during the summer.

Can't go anyway, just remembered I have a birthday party to go to. Neighbor is turning 40, sounds like it's going to be quite the show.

Problem is, I don't know ANY tuner shops in the area. I've asked around, but here in the Layton/Ogden area I can't find a single one. If anyone knows of any possibilities I can call them and see what they say.

I've tried everything I can think of short of a new engine. Changed the t-stat twice, and tried running without one at all. New water pump (old one looked fine). New radiator. Bill (celicoupe) changed the head gasket and fixed a likely issue with how the water hoses were routed. I've changed to tune on the fly to make it run more rich. I know Bill had the head checked and looked over the cylinders and nothing was found, but at this point I'm guessing it's probably a cracked block or possibly head or head gasket issue. It warms up fine, runs ok for a few minutes, then like it hits a wall it starts overheating. Gets air in the system, and I'm pretty sure it's not just boiling coolant. I found a shop that claims to specialize in diagnosing problems and they were confident if I brought it in they could tell me what is wrong even if they are not equipped to fix it. Trouble is, damn car will not start. Honestly, I'm both fed up and too busy to put any effort into getting it running.

As far as disgracing me... Sure, ok, maybe, but when my car is running lets do it anyway. Perhaps we should do this comparison with the hoods raised? :twisted:

Was cool to meet everyone and put faces to the screen names.

For anyone concerned the trees in the park left presents on my car. took some elbow grease but got it all off. i would highly recommend cleaning your car asap. that stuff is nearly impossible to get off once it dries completely.

Gotta say, that was pretty awesome. Thanks to everyone for coming out and spreading word. That was far bigger than I imagined. I was impressed, not just with the cars but the people. Gotta say I genuinely liked every single person I spoke with and admire your talents and vehicles. Whether it's a bad-ass lil hilux, a classy roadster or a true JDM Right hand driver. GJ SLC. Next time, I'll have more than some new turd to bring. haha.

So.... when're we doin it again?

and since I bumped us off of UtahSleeper's page.
